First you'll be captivated by the views, miles of rolling countryside stretches out ahead of you. Wild horses and mountain sheep lazily cross your path as you drive into the National Park from Hay on Wye.

Then you'll fall in love with the house... elegantly nestled into the hillside with magnificent views of the Black Mountains this is a spectacular location for a luxury holiday cottage. With stunning views from your breakfast table and the hot tub, lazy lunches on the terrace surveying the area are a must!

The farm house is wonderfully remote and rural, yet just ten minutes to the lovely town of Hay on Wye, famous for it's international festival of literature and numerous bookshops and independent shops, this is the ultimate antidote to busy modern life.

This complex comes with two properties, both restored with every luxury in mind. There is the main farmhouse, with three lovely double bedrooms sleeping six and a self contained barn, with a further two double bedrooms, sleeping four just across the courtyard.

In the main house there is a fabulous wooden kitchen with granite worktops, a large breakfast area with an electric oven and hob built in so you can flip pancakes straight on to the plate!

For more formal meals step through into the open plan dining and living room with a lovely oak table, open fire and cosy leather armchairs making it perfect for relaxing. You will also find a large flatscreen television and surround sound cinema system built in too.

Across the courtyard the barn is flooded with light from the enormous oak windows which give you the most magnificent views of the Black Mountains. You'll find a luxury open plan oak kitchen, dining room, wood burner and more cosy leather sofas.

There are luxurious roll top baths and walk in showers in both the barn and main house, as well as large double beds in each of the five bedrooms.

Not forgetting to mention - the best positioned private hot tub we've seen to date!

 

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

WALKING: Some of the best walking in the Black Mountains & Brecon Beacons right out the front door. Lord Hereford's Knob and Gospel Pass are just above the farm house.

MOUNTAIN BIKES: The stunning walks surrounding you are also fabulous mountain bike rides, with a route for every level, both MBT and Road cycling. Bikes can be hired (and delivered!) from nearby Hay on Wye.

RIDING: The Llanthony Valley is the otherside of Gospel Pass and home to a couple of trekking centres, which offer day rides throughour April - October. Tregoyd Riding is apx 3 miles down the hill and offers lessons for tots as well as trekking for all ages.

SOMETHING DIFFERENT: For the more adventurous the list is endless with gliding, rock climbing, abseiling, gorge walking, rafting, canoeing, archery, caving and pot holing etc.

SOMETHING MORE SEDATE: Thankfully there are plenty of options for quieter days, such as exploring nearby Hay on Wye, famous for its annual Hay Festival of Literature and its countless bookshops, eateries and very local stores. The Cathedral town of Hereford is also 25 miles away.

TOP TIP: The River Cafe in Glasbury is our favourite local spot for delicious authentic Italian food and the best latte for miles around. Just a short drive down the hill. You can pick up the morning paper in the garage next door too.

SLEEPING 5 - 10: Five luxury double bedrooms in total. Three large double bedrooms in the main house, all with lots of storage and cosy duvets, hairdryer available. Two large double bedrooms in the barn with large brass beds, no outside noise apart from the occasional sheep bleeting and a chorus of bird song!

ADDITIONAL GUESTS:  This is a sleeps 10 but has two double sofa beds so can take up to 14, we also have Hidden in the heart of the hills not far from Great Escape Farm , a private nest of beautiful handmade shepherds’ huts providing accommodation for 8 guests - please refer to Great Escape Glamping 42859 as needs to be booked separately but great if you have a larger party than 14.

COOKING: Spoilt for choice! The main house has a very well equipped kitchen with electric oven and hob, flat screen television and breakfast bar. The barn has an open plan kitchen with lovely oak units and an electric oven and hob.

DINING: Lots of choice again: relaxed in the kitchen of the main house, or walk through into a lovely dining room with open fire. Or in the barn with spectacular views across the mountains. Barbeque available.

RELAXING: Cosy sitting room in the main house with open fire, flat screen television, Sky TV and DVD. Upstairs den with X Box and sprawling sofas + Wi-fi. Wood burner and cosy sofas in the barn with flat screen television and DVD player as well.

KEEPING CLEAN: Luxurious bathrooms in the main house and barn, both with walk in showers and roll top baths. Upstairs loo and basin in the barn as well. Self contained laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer, perfect for stashing muddy boots.

HOT TUB: Not everybody wants to bathe in the great outdoors, so there is an additional charge of £150 per week/ £120 for a short break, for the hot tub if you would like to use it, payable at the time of making your booking. This covers it being cleaned before and after your stay, with new filters and keeping it bubbly and hot whilst you are there.

DOGS: 2 dogs welcome however must be kept on a lead due to nearby livestock. Dogs only allowed in the kitchen area, not allowed on the furnishings, upstairs on beds or sofas. If this is ignored an extra cleaning charge could be applied

SECURITY BOND: There is a £350 security bond for this property managed by Sugar and Loaf.

Amy, 16th March 2018

I Stayed the weekend with friends - the accommodation is absolutely beautiful and the hot tub was amazing! It is modern but traditional and to a very high standard. It really is remote and the scenery is fantastic. I would really recommend this property to anyone looking to book time away with family or friends - we went for a hen party and it was Read moreperfect. The owner too was brilliant when we needed some help with our cars and couldnt do enough for us. I would definitely book to stay again!! Hide
